Get the look: best vintage-style 1920s flapper shoes

1920s style shoe

I’m in shopping mode today. I need some authentic-looking 1920s flapper shoes, something I can do the Charleston in for an hour or so and still ankle home without looking like a dope.

It turns out that looking for 1920s-style dog kennels* these days is not so easy. There are plenty of imposters and mean doppelgängers out there that don’t measure up to an authentic 1920s look.

Take a peek at these nifty, hot jazz babies. I found them on my time-travelling shopping adventures. I’m goofy about all of these. They’re the elephant’s eyebrows if you ask me.

These shoes are a flapper’s delight.

Have a fantastic weekend everyone.
